Holiday Centerpiece Decor


Over the weekend I had the opportunity to decorate for a married couples holiday party at my church. I didn't have a budget, so I had to use what I was already in my inventory.  I used a mix of gold and silver Christmas tree bulbs, with my "go to" glass cylinder vases. They made a simple, beautiful statement.  I didn't get a chance to take any photos, so I recreated it in my studio.  I also used them the next day in my home for a Christmas party that we were hosting.

Even if you don't have a taller vase, you can use any size.  You can also use a smaller bulb.  The best time to buy Christmas bulbs are right after Christmas when they're at least 50% off.

What did you use this year for holiday table decor?

Using Paper Poms for Holiday Decor



Are you looking for a inexpensive idea for your table decor this holiday season?  Try Paper Poms!  I discovered how to make these not too long ago. (I know I'm a little behind! LOL!) All you need is tissue paper, scissors and fishing line, ribbon or string- and voila- you've got a centerpiece.  (I'll be posting a tutorial later). These poms are great because tissue paper comes in a variety of colors.  I made these for a baby shower earlier this fall, and placed them on top of tall glass centerpieces.  They made a great statement in the room!
I also used them for a boy/girl dual baby shower-pastel yellow and gray were the colors-very cute!  So try them in silver or gold, or tradition holiday colors.  Good Luck!

Are you familiar with paper poms?  Would you use them for decorating this holiday season?
